Rely on Our Professional for Prompt Water Removal in Simsbury

No matter how much energy you have, clearing your Simsbury utility area after the water heater ruptures is a colossal task. Complications mount if the malfunction occurs while you and your family are away. Waiting a few hours or days to rid the space of stagnant water encourages the relatively clean water to become contaminated. Not only does a large quantity of water need extraction, but it also might require containment and disposal prescribed by local regulations. 

Categorization of Water Quality

Our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained managers and technicians master the principles of Simsbury water removal, including determining the water’s category. The silt and residues in the ruptured heater tank can provide an environment where microbes can grow. When the water mixes with soils and other substances on the floor, the liquid’s characteristics can change rapidly from clean, Category 1 water to the dirtier Categories 2 and 3.

Safe Management and Disposal of Contaminated Water

Every locale has its rules concerning increasingly contaminated water. Even more important than the rules are their rationale. The pathogens that can grow in Category 2 and 3 water can make you and your family ill and accelerate the deterioration of building materials. SERVPRO Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) utilize personal protective equipment (PPE) and the industry’s best practices to collect, contain, and dispose of the water. 

Moisture Testing

Moisture probes and meters give baseline levels to help with drying goals. SERVPRO also wants to ensure no trapped water remains. Thermal imaging cameras locate hidden water caches for the team to release and remove.

Appropriate Cleaning and Disinfection

After SERVPRO technicians use commercial-grade pumps and extractors to remove the water, we must clean and sanitize the area before drying. EPA-registered products help with these tasks. We may add an air scrubber to remove airborne debris during the cleanup and drying phases. HEPA filters trap contaminants and vent to the outside, and the negative air pressure employed helps seal plastic sheeting barriers. Other spaces in your home remain unaffected.
